[ps2id id=’1′ target=”/]Why is Starbucks so expensive?
One word – culture. Actually, make it two – culture and branding.
Starbucks isn’t just a coffee shop, it’s a destination. A destination for business meetings, a destination for those looking for an office away from home, a destination to be seen in.
It’s become a worldwide symbol for quality coffee and good service. But that worldwide symbol also demands a premium price. And they’re going to getting it – because millions of consumers are currently paying for it.
Despite what you may believe, the quality of coffee Starbucks offers is likely no different from their competitor two stores down. They just market it better. Just like they market their deliciously famous Frappuccinos.
[ps2id id=’2′ target=”/]What type of Frappuccinos are there?
Frappuccinos weren’t part of the original Starbucks menu, no. They were invented by one of their store managers in California, on a very warm summer’s day.
He grabbed his blender, conducted a few experiments with his coffee, gathered feedback from his customers, then sent in his idea to headquarters. They loved it.
Funnily enough, the inventor of the Frappuccino now hates what the American Coffee Culture has turned into.
These coffee snobs instead push fussy coffee-based beverages with complicated combinations of milk, sugar, and foam, Italian-sounding names, and high profit margins.
Back to the story, in 1995, the Frappuccino was officially introduced to the Starbucks menu. By 2012, they were selling more than $2 billion worth of the cold drinks each year. Yep – we loved it.
Today, there are two different types of Frappuccinos available – Blended Coffee and Blended Cream.
Here is a list of all the Frappuccino variations available in Australia:
- Dark Mocha
- Java Chip
- White Chocolate
- Double Chocolate Chip
- Green Tea
- Strawberries & Cream
- White Chocolate
Frappuccinos aren’t the healthiest of iced beverages you can consume, unlike Boost Juice. A Venti-sized drink will see you taking in around 500 calories with around 60g of sugar as well.

[ps2id id=’3′ target=”/]Besides coffee, what else is on the menu?
Just like every other coffee shop, Starbucks has a range of sides you can have with your hot or cold beverage.
They range from fully fledged items suitable for lunch, to small snacks for afternoon tea.
Here are a few of the items on offer:
- Savoury Bites
- Sausage Roll
- Vegetable Roll
- Premium Beef Pie
- Quiche Lorraine
- Butter Chicken Filo
- Bakery Feeds
- Banana Bread
- Plain Bagel
- Blueberry Bagel
- Cinnamon Swirl
- Chocolate Croissant
- Chocolate Muffin
- Cookie Crumble Donut
- Cakes & Slices
- New York Baked Cheesecake
- Flourless Chocolate Cake
- Brownie Slice
- Caramel Slice
- Sandwiches & Wraps
- Pulled Pork & Asian Slaw Bun
- Smoked Ham & Aged Cheddar Croissant
- Tandoori Chicken Sandwich
- Egg Benedict Panini
- Creamy Egg & Baby Cos Sandwich
- Chicken Caesar Wrap
Please note these do vary by individual store as does their pricing.
[ps2id id=’3′ target=”/]A bit about Starbucks in Australia
Sydney was the first city in Australia to play home to a Starbucks back in 2000.
The uptake of their coffee has been nowhere near as massive as the United States takeover. Today, there are only 34 of their coffee houses around Australia in Sydney, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, and Melbourne.
Unlike the rest of the world, where you’ll find another 28,000 locations spread out across 76 countries.
Starbucks continues to make little effort into expanding their Australian operations. Maybe we just prefer our Coffee Club.
Either way, Australia’s got plenty of coffee shops, and plenty which serve up the hot brew for quite a bit cheaper than Starbucks does.
But if you’re willing to pay a bit more for their coffee, you’ll be greeted by an inviting atmosphere, welcoming staff, and plenty of space to spread out in.
